.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions in view of the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
